to fill the vacancy until the next election could be held. there were at least three sump committees, i think maybe four and some of them raised good sums of money. and my concern was that they were functioning as campaigns without actually being campaigns. the commission decided that they weren't campaigns under current law. but i think the commission agreed that the raising and spending of that size of money was not designed by the voters to be something that went unregulated. so the commission directed the staff to put together some provisions that would, as i said, regulate committed are designed to draft, particularly those that raise tangible sums of money. the reason for that is that a citywide campaign aimed at a single person still reaches people citywide, and would conceivably impact their decisions at the polling place based on the fact that you get someone to run for office by extolling their virtues. so these rectally simple to follow will treat under our law, such campaigns, such committees, excuse me, as primarily formed campaigns and therefore, report their activities

of elected school board members and hopefully you will get the spirit of all of this. and i would say one last -- not last thing, but one more thing. the last six months, i have to say that it's been a political process. there was a lot of tensions and i'm real thankful that my three colleagues who were running for re-election are re-elected. they won re-election pretty readily despite opposition. i just want to say one thing about this, let's move on and really all focus. focus on our students and just move on. i hope to continue my interest in supporting our public schools despite all the range of new issues, i must respond to at city hall. just one sad thing and i wish i had a little more time to accomplish -- it's going to be on tonight's agenda as first reading. it's an opportunity for us to make a statement that we do care about people who live in the city. we do care about people who stay in the city and we do care about people, in particular, people of minority businesses and businesses run by women in the city to have opportunities to take advantage -- not take advantage, but

thank you and now one of the thing that happened after the election and i said, sean i did it and he said yes you did and then he walked me from his office into the champ better -- sorry and he turned on the lights, and it was empty and i remember this profound sense washed over me and it was a sense to serve san francisco but it was a sense that to share with sean somebody i looked up to -- sorry you know how difficult this is going to be for me and i was going to try to kef my exposure because one of the thing that i admire most about sean is that he has a demand and respect for board rules. he stands up every single time he speaks. and that is something that he doesn't even tell anyone to do and no one telling us you to do it, its something that is modeled and he has demonstrated it even when he was upset and tossing the mike around he still stood up when he had a rebuttal he stood up when he disagreed he stood up and when he agreed he stood up and i think that is really quintessential because sean stands up. when he was the only one on that ten-one vote he still stands up. he

understand that in chapter 3, we are handling complaints alleged violations of the ordinance by elected officials or department heads, but also those that come directly to us and don't go through the task force. is that right? >> i think this language was included just to make sure it was clear that any referral from the task force or in the off chance by the supervisor of record. this is not something that would come directly to the commission. >> but a referral, where the order of determination is a willful violation of a department head or an elected official would still go under chapter 3; right? >> correct. >> and this is just referring to allegations of non-willful. >> okay. >> so katherine is right in one aspect that the potential exists and the other part of this there was a concern that if something that staff was not a party of interest, if you will and a referral. so the only time that staff would be a party of interest is if we initiated the complaint and therefore, the executive director wouldn't have a role apart from providing you a legal recommendation on what was presen

that is not at all why you were not elected. the sheriff was a very popular and well-respected supervisor, and our district strongly supported his reinstatement. your vote to reinstate him actually earned you votes and significantly increased your support in the district. i want to go on record speaking as a domestic violence survivor for myself and others we know your vote does not mean you condone or minimize the scourge of domestic violence but demonstrates your ability to vote on fact and law rather than emotion. the attacks on you were some pr consultant -- to make a false -- against you. you can leave office with your head held high knowing you did the morally and legally correct thing. the attacks on you have highlighted just how ha rampant racism is. one of the values you have taught me was about servant leadership and that is why i'm sure the right was galvanized to defeat you. they knew your -- >> president chiu: thank you very much. next speaker. >> good evening, supervisors. david elliott lewis. i'm here to thank supervisor olague for her service. i have to admit wh

buttresses being worked on over of the last period. the contractor has elected to put in a sheet pile cutoff wall in the north-south division on division between zones 2 and 3 on eastside of the fremont street. this will allow them to start the excavation underneath the fremont street bridge and start moving into that zone 4 portion of that zone 4 excavation early before the completion of buttress work. so that shoring wall went in or that cutoff wall went in this last period and will allow them to start excavating under the bridge. the awss work continues. as i mentioned there is just a couple of shots of the work progressing on mission street and the integral work around the other utilitis in the streets. so next up is the substructure package as i mentioned. so we'll just walk through that real quick. the shoring walls are already completed. you might have seen the slides before, the water table. the next step is the micro piles and there are a total of close to 1800 of them, the length of the project, but as they are completed the contractor, who is starting with the grounding and geothe

reality of a man by the name of james junior elected mayor of san francisco in 1912. he didn't have a city hall because it was destroyed in the earth wake of 1906. construction began in april of 1913. in december 1915, the building was complete. it opened it's doors in january 1916. >> it's a wonderful experience to come to a building built like this. the building is built as a palace. not for a king or queen. it's built for all people. this building is beautiful art. those are architecture at the time when city hall was built, san francisco had an enormous french population. therefore building a palace in the art tradition is not unusual. >> jimmie was an incredible individual he knew that san francisco had to regain it's place in the world. he decided to have the tallest dome built in the united states. it's now stands 307 feet 6 inches from the ground 40 feet taller than the united states capital. >> you could spend days going around the building and finding something new. the embellishment, the carvings, it represents commerce, navigation, all of the things that san francisco is
